Shania Twain Ready to Begin New Album
Shania Twain covers the new issue of Vegas, which is fitting since the country-pop diva just started her two-year residency at Caesars Palace in Sin City. In this case, the old adage that what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas does not apply, as the ‘Man! I Feel Like a Woman’ singer shares that she is ready to work on a new album, what makes her show more glamorous and how it really feels to be on the comeback trail.
The singer revealed that she plans to begin working on a new album, but there is a caveat — she has to fit the recording process into her schedule. But Twain also admitted that her confidence is steadily growing, and she’s progressing from recent years.
“I’m so confident how my voice is coming across in studio after working with Lionel and doing ‘Today Is Your Day,’” she said, referring to Lionel Richie. “I know I am ready to go back in the studio and record an album, I just don’t have the time yet.”
In the meantime, she is giving her all to her residency production in Sin City. “I’m going in a more glamorous direction, and there is more fashion than in my other tours,” Twain admitted about the costuming and staging. “It’s very cinematic and expressive.”
The ’90s superstar, who battled dysphonia (the inability to sing) after she found out her husband Mutt Lange was cheating on her with a friend, said the process has been “huge” and “long,” but she’s made it through to the other side. “I really pushed myself out the door and said, ‘You’ve got to try to find out why your voice is not there for you,’” she admitted.
Through it all — the cheating scandal and subsequent divorce, the dysphonia and the return to performing via the residency — one thing remains critically important to Twain, and that’s her fans.
“I don’t want to lose contact with them,” the singer declared. “I don’t want to lose that element of being able to touch people and connect with them and not be separated from them. For me it’s like a dream, so to the fan it must be as well. All of the satisfaction will be magnified.”
